After their successful European tour in November 2014 HeartFirst Records is proud to release the new 7 EP by LIFE from Japan entitled “Proof of Survival”. LIFE hail from Tokyo and their name stands for “Liberty Independence Freedom Equality”. The band has been around since the early 90s and released their first demo in 1993. Their releases have been hard to find in Europe, but this changes now since at the same time as the new EP on HeartFirst, LA VIDA ES UN MUS from England is rereleasing their debut LP entitled “The World Lies Across Them“. LIFE’s “Proof of Survival” EP offers four songs of blown out yet rocking hardcore punk — three fast smashers on one side and and a long track on the flipside. After KRIEGSHÖG in 2008 this is finally a new release by a Japanese band on HeartFirst. Also Nori, who currently plays bass in LIFE, has been playing on the first release ever on HeartFirst, the debut EP by NUKEY PIKES. So he is one of the oldest members of the HeartFirst family.
